US Tennis Star John Isner: “That Would Be Awesome” if Trump Comes to Watch Me at Wimbleton (VIDEO)
US tennis star John Isner told reporters it would be “awesome” if President Donald Trump stops by to watch him play at Wimbledon this week.
The 6 foot 8 inch star tennis player said, “I’d love to have Trump come watch me.”
The Daily Mail reported:
If John Isner can ace his way through to Friday’s semi-finals, he is ready to incur the wrath of social media by inviting Donald Trump to Centre Court.
The US President — a big tennis fan — arrives in London for his UK visit on Thursday night and American No 1 Isner would appreciate the support should he reach the last four.
‘I’d love to have Trump come watch me,’ said No 9 seed Isner. ‘That would be awesome. Maybe I’ll tweet at him if I win on Wednesday. I know a lot of people won’t like that, but I don’t care.’
The 6ft 8in Isner reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon for the first time on Monday by blasting through 19-year-old Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 7-6, 7-6.
Despite his astonishing serve, Isner has an awful record at the All England Club, having never gone beyond the third round before this fortnight.
The 33-year-old from North Carolina is best known around these parts for his absurd match against Nicolas Mahut in 2010, which he won 70-68 in the final set.
Isner reached the semi-final round on Wednesday defeating Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-3.
